Heather Burke joins us as a year-round resident with her husband, David, a Nantucket Cottage Hospital employee since 2010. They have two grown children, Sarah and Andrew, who are both student athletes at UMass Amherst. Heather will assist current staff members Exeuctive Director, Michael May and (newly promoted) Marketing and Events Coordinator, Marisa Holden to successfully run the NPT office. Her role will include daily administrative support, clerical work, database support and execution of event logistics.

Heather enjoys using her administrative skills working and volunteering for organizations that strengthen communities. Her recent experience includes work as the office receptionist and data manager at Wellfleet Elementary School on Cape Cod, volunteer coordinator for the Cape Cod Harriers track club, and an elected member of the Bethel Board of Education (CT).

When not cheering-on her family of runners, Heather enjoys exploring antique decorative arts and practicing yoga. Living in an apartment of a Union Street house bearing an NPT house marker has piqued her interest in Nantucket’s historical homes. We are very happy to have Heather join the our staff and look forward to our members meeting her during the 2015 events. In the meantime if you have any questions for Heather you can contact her at
